    Refrigerator Dormancy

    Thanks to Bob Ziemer for pointing out this How-to video.

    Winters too cold or warm for Sarracenia dormancy? There's the old refrigerator method. If you need to take notes maybe you should stick to collecting POGs. Note the use of gloves.

    Grand Hotel... always the same. People come, people go. Nothing ever happens.

    I saw this video last year while Googling the topic. I was a bit shocked to see that he closed off the bag without any media in it or applying anti fungal powder to the rhizome. My guess is that if left unchecked, 2 months down the road those bags would look to be filled with cotton balls and not rhizomes due to mold and without leaving any phyllodia those rhizomes would have a rough wake up. I would have liked to know as well what time of year this was done at as photoperiod plays a role in dormancy. Seems like the procedure was a bit brute but glad to see that even other growers in tropical zones are able to grow these plants. Would be nice to see his nepenthes collection : -D

    How violent! Of course, the gloves are necessary.

    He did, briefly, mention fungicide. What I like about this approach is that it saves space and when you go to take them out for next year, it will be easy to divide and organize.

    He might have a fungicide in his wash. He never said that it was just water.

    Sounds easy enough...
    The thing is, the plant was entering dormancy?
    Or did he just cut the leaves of a "normal" growing period?
